Design the dress yourself based on what works with your frame and have a local seamstress sew it for you.

It’s entirely do-able! A reputable seamstress should have access to a matching fabric.

If you are needing a hem you may already have access to extra fabric.  I was scrambling for fabric before my alterations to send to my bolero maker as a sample, but afterwards I was drowning in it!  (I’m 5’4″ and was forced to order a size 10!)

Sometimes you can order extra fabric from the designer. Call the place you ordered from & find out. Then talk to a seamstress. You want to order the fabric from the same place as the dress so it will come from the same dye lot.

It’s entirely doable! A reputable seamstress should have access to fabric that matches.

Definitely doable!  Your dress is already so pretty, but it’ll look great with the modifications you’ve got in mind!

That’s my dress too! I would check and see if you can order extra fabric or order a “long” and use that? A good seamstress will be able to make it happen! Good Luck!

Absolutely doable.  David’s Bridal may even be able to do it – but you may want to take a look at some of Mrs. Avocado’s post… they ordered extra fabric and added more sleeve-ish areas to her dress.  Her sister recently got married, and turned what I believe was a strapless dress into a beautiful sleeved dress.

You can totally get that done, I would just use a really good seamstress so she doesn’t mess up your dress and your vision!
